We have been busy lately adding art and improving the condo we rent out to Cuenca tourists. Below is one of the additions. We bought this rug in Peguchi, a little village just outside of Otavalo, Ecuador. The colors are perfect for the condo.
The big project, that we were feverishly finishing last night, was a new top for our terrace sunshade. When we bought the sunshade it had a canvas top. This was fine, unless it rained or the wind came up. Chuck came up with a grand solution. He said slats would let the wind and rain through and also provide shade.
We hired our friend, Hugo, to design the new top. We told him that we had new tenants arriving today and wanted the project finished before they arrived. Hugo made the top in one week. The new top was installed yesterday afternoon. Here are the pictures.

Today, we met our new tenants at the airport. They will be renting the condo for almost two months. Below are Gayle and Paul (from California) with Karen and Randy (condo managers) and Chuck.
Gayle and Paul plan to be future residents of Cuenca. This is their first time here. We bet they are going to enjoy their stay!
